Models for understanding the basic concepts of fine grinding and how they apply to the design of stirred media mills have not yet matured. While spherical media in tower mills has previously been studied, real grinding media shape in stirred mills can range from spherical steelceramic balls to highly non-spherical sand or slag resulting in very different media and grinding dynamics.
Abstract. Autogenous pebble and fully autogenous grinding of limestone in a stirred media mill, with coarse limestone particles used as grinding media, were studied. The results showed that ...
Mar 09, 2020 stirred media mills are still in an early to intermediate stage of development. A classic factor in a time approach can lead to the failure to identify and connect basic and interaction impacts and optimize grinding parameters 21. To date, a lot of studies have been carried out to produce ne and ultrane materials in a stirred media mill.
